Winning bid: £5000.00
Lot number: 092-6185

Closed in 2000 and dismantled in 2004, Hanyu's legacy lives on thanks to Ichiro Akuto who purchased the remaining 400 casks and began releasing it in the Ichiro's Malt card series. This marketing masterstroke featured a different playing card on the label, allowing people to easily remember their favourites and encouraging collectors to complete the full deck. There were only 17 years of production at Hanyu so stocks are limited and scarce.

This bottle is the Queen of Spades in the series.

Bottled: 2009

Cask Type: Hogshead & Type Port Pipe

Cask Number: 466

53.1% ABV / 70cl

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
